Position Summary

Smartkarma, a Sequoia Capital backed financial technology firm, is looking for a working student to support the
team in Frankfurt. We are looking for people that want to be involved in building up a business in a new
geography and are willing to get stuck in!

We look for creative individuals willing to run with projects, whilst not being afraid to own up to mistakes (and
share what they learned in the process). This is not a typical working student position; it is an entrepreneurial role
which comes with a high level of responsibility and expectations. Given that Smartkarma operates at the
intersection of finance and technology, we’d like someone who has an interest in both fields that they are looking
to develop.

The working student will occasionally be expected to work under tight deadlines, as well as know how to have a
bit of a laugh. We are not looking for candidates who take themselves too seriously, or those who expect to get
away with doing the bare minimum. Our firm is at a critical juncture of its growth story, and we need co-pilots, not
passengers.

Requirements for the position

● Interest in financial services and technology
● Solid understanding of the asset management industry & platform business models
● Entrepreneurial spirit, proactive self-starter that doesn’t take themselves too seriously
● Detail-oriented, with strong organizational skills
● Very strong IT skills
● Very good English, additional languages a plus

What You Will Get in Return

The opportunity to learn from a team of entrepreneurs who are focused on making a positive impact on the
industry, and want to have fun while doing so. You will be immersed in a growing start-up, and will have a direct
impact on the path that Smartkarma EMEA travels on. The role provides an excellent exposure to both the
finance and technology sectors and a solid foundation in both. In addition, you will get access to Tech Quartier
